Will The Fetus Be Born Deformed After Taking An Abortion?
I want to ask. I am 2 months pregnant, because the family does not allow me to have another child, I was told to take 2 cytotec drugs, 1 grain under the tongue, 1 item in the vagina. After 5 hours there was quite a lot of blood and a blood clot of 3 finger. After that the bleeding stopped. However I am still positively pregnant. If I continue this pregnancy whether my fetus will be born deformed. Can ultrasound see the fetus with defects or not. Please answer the doctor
Hello Ms. Arie, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The drug you use is indeed one drug that can be used to abort the womb, but its use is only permitted by the doctor's instructions and must be based on indications / special considerations where the condition of pregnancy is indeed untenable or the fetus is not possible to survive after birth.
Its use, of course, is very possible to cause miscarriage and fetal disability, so it is necessary to further confirm to the obstetrician what your current pregnancy condition is, whether the fetus has come out completely or not, and whether your fetus still survives but is deformed or not. During the examination, it is most likely that you will undergo an ultrasound examination to find out your current pregnancy condition.
Also note that the results of pregnancy tests will remain positive until some migraine after a miscarriage occurs (if indeed your pregnancy is dead) so that it cannot be used as a reference whether a miscarriage occurs or not and whether the fetus has come out completely or not.
While it is highly recommended to immediately check with your obstetrician to determine the therapy / action that should be given to you at this time, and not to use the drug again because abortion without medical supervision and without medical considerations is very dangerous and can also cause legal problems.
I hope this helps.
